A recipe inspired by Vasili's Garden TV filming in our garden. My kids asked Vasili to describe his favourite meal
Cook the rice of choice in a rice cooker or stove top and remove from the cooking process 5 minutes prior to completion.
Turn on the oven to heat to 160 degrees celcius
Place the rice into a mixing bowl and mix through the diced capsicum, a handful of diced tomatoes and the garden greens and herbs, salt and pepper.
Lay the squid tubes in a baking dish and push the rice into the tube to fill it evenly, without being too full. Repeat until all tubes are filled
Add the passata, water and remaining tomatoes to the dish around the tubes
Cover with a lid or foil and bake in the oven for 40 minutes until the tubes are tender
Cut each tube in half to serve, or quarters if serving with a side salad. Add additional fresh herbs and a grind of fresh pepper.
Not suited to re-heating.
